Christie Neptune

Christie Neptune is an Interdisciplinary Artist working across video, photography, sculpture, and performance arts. Her work investigates the spatial-temporal articulations of identity, place and historical cultural memory. Neptune utilizes the quiet of black subjectivity, disparate industrial materials, and varied processes of abstraction and assemblage to contest and dismantle infrastructural networks of hegemonic power embedded within space.

Neptune lives between Brooklyn, New York, and Cambridge, Massachusetts. She received her B.A. in Visual Arts from Fordham University and is currently a masters candidate in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s program in Art, Culture, and Technology (Expected: June 01 2023). Neptune's work has been exhibited at venues including: Gagosian, New York; We Buy Gold, New York; Martos Gallery, New York; Tilton Gallery, New York; Vox Populi, Philadelphia; the Bronx Museum of the Arts; and the Queens Museum, amongst others. Her work is in the collection of the Worcester Art Museum, Massachusetts. In 2021, she was awarded the Prix Medeos in connection with Grant Wahlquist gallery’s presentation of her work at Art-o-rama, Marseille. Her work has been widely discussed in publications such as 4 Columns, Artforum, Hyperallergic, the New York Times, Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post. Her numerous awards and residencies include Cornell University’s \Art Award, Light Work Artist-in-Residence, NYFA Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Arts, Smack Mellon Studio Residency, and the Bronx Museum of the Arts AIM Fellowship, among others.
